In the international edition of Lagaf: Les Aventures de Moktar - Vol 1: La Zoubida, you play Titus' fox mascot. His beloved Suzy has been kidnapped on the other side of the Sahara desert, and to get her back he has to advance through 15 levels (with codes for each one) comprising of nearly 1000 screens of platform gameplay, scrolling in 8 directions. There are secret rooms to find, and bosses at the end of each level. The player can also interact with many parts of the background. Using available objects such as springs and crates correctly is often vital to progress. Alternate modes of transport such as Magic Carpets and Skateboards also make an appearance.
In this game you're a cute fox, of course :-) Your goal is to avoid dogs, nasty construction workers, weird looking things that tend to hit you with giant whackers and similar creatures. You can fight back by throwing objects back at them (ones that you can pick up).
Its simple, yet fun! It's a classic arcade: playing it feels like playing a "TV console" rather than a PC game. The game is compatible with almost all CGA, EGA and VGA graphic adapters and features some nice graphics.
After a while the music can get annoying, especially if the game uses standard PC speaker for playback so once you've had enough you can use the F3 key to turn it off. :)
Navigation is easy: arrow keys and spacebar is all you will need. Having a brain in this kind of game may only slow you down, so shut it down if possible.
Titus the Fox is a very nice platform game, where you can pick up things to shoot at enemies, jump on walls and climb buildings, etc.
MobyGames description says it all about Titus' most popular platformer: "Titus the Fox: to Marrakech and Back is one of the most popular and innovative titles ever to be witnessed on the old 286. It's a really cute platform game in which you play a fox - as simple as that - which has to advance from level to level, having to defeat bosses, kick enemies' arses, and the sort of thing you'd generally expect from a platform game. What does set this game apart is the cute, catchy music, the wonderfully drawn graphics and the super addictive gameplay, which make it an experience to remember."
In short, Titus The Fox is a very enjoyable jump'n run game-- technically and in terms of gameplay one of the better ones of its time. My only gripe is that the scrolling is a bit annoying as the screen only starts to move when you are very close to the edge of it. Strangely enough, the French version of this game was released with a different main character, Moktar.
